News - Belleville - The sweet and savoury smells of freshly barbecued ribs filled the air at Zwicks Park this past weekend during the annual Big Brothers Big Sisters Ribfest, and organizer Arlene Coculuzzi said she was “overwhelmed” to see the public response to the charitable event. “It’s like Thanksgiving, where you’re cooking all day and then ten minutes to eat,” Coculuzzi said with a laugh. “We’ve been planning since last year on Friday, and I’m already spinning the wheels for 2014.”

As it was a free event, attendance figures are based on parking numbers and information supplied by vendors, and while the exact total isn’t known, Coculuzzi said that attendance was considerably higher than 2012. “I think it went amazing; it was beautiful weather and we

Police investigate suspicious fire

By Steve Jessel

News - Belleville - Police are investigating what has been deemed a “suspicious” fire at a warehouse at 99 South George Street on Friday afternoon, and are asking any members of the public with additional information to come forward. “We’re still actively seeking witnesses,” said Belleville Police Ser-

vices Detective Brad Lentini. “Anyone who may have been around the area of the fire prior to it starting … we’re just asking everybody to come forward who might have seen any suspicious persons or activity in that area [between 11:30 a.m. and 12:15 p.m. Friday afternoon].” At approximately 1:08 p.m. on Friday afternoon emergency ser-

vices received several calls regarding a fire on South George Street. Members of the Belleville Fire Department and Belleville Police responded to the calls, managing to contain the fire to the west end of the building. The fire was almost completely put out by 5 p.m., and fire personnel remained at the scene for Please see “Seeking” on page 2

Complex to be converted By Steve Jessel

YOU R UI R N DI N E P DN E N O RC O E R YO D EE N PE D ET NGT R G CER

News - Belleville - The city’s planning advisory committee gave the go ahead to convert an existing apartment complex on George Street into condominiums on August 6, paving the way for the building tenants to move from rental accommodations to ownership. Belleville Towers, at 255 George Street, is a 40-unit apartment building constructed in 1964. The building consists of ten twobedroom apartments, 28 one-bedroom units and two bachelor suites, and includes extensive parking along the east and south sides of the complex. For existing tenants of the building, little is expected to change. Section 51 of the Residential Tenancies Act of 2006 provides security of tenure for existing tenants and also provides first right of refusal on the purchase of an existing unit. This means that existing tenants will be able to continue to live in the building under their existing rental agreements, while also giving them the first right to purchase their unit should a third party make an offer. “It is felt that it would be appropriate to consider the conversion of this property to a condominium,” said Belleville manager of approvals Spencer Hutchinson in his report. “The 40 apartment units located on the subject property lend themselves to be converted to condominium ownership.” While no time frame was given for the conversion, ownership representative Ruth Ferguson said that little to no construction was expected in the units, with most of the work being done to the interiors as units are prepared for sale. The building typically experiences one to two vacancies per year, and Ferguson said the expected price for the condominium units will be between $100,000 and $130,000. Committee members Taso Christopher, Jack Miller and Jackie Denyes all expressed their concerns over the owner’s willingness to sell the units once converted, as a condominium building is taxed at a lower rate than an apartment complex. However, city staff said that there are no measures in place to enforce the sale of units.

several hours to deal with any potential hotspots. “Anything on the east side was destroyed by fire,” Lentini said. There was no one inside the building at the time of the fire, and no injuries have been reported. The building is owned by Canadian Pacific Railway but had been rented out to a pair or parties who used it for storage, according to Lentini. Lentini took over the investigation the following day after examination of the building led police to believe the fire was suspicious in nature. “Some items were recovered at that scene for further testing, in order for this investigation to see what kind of accelerants may have been used,” Lentini said. Lentini said one witness reported hearing and seeing an explosion inside the building shortly after the fire started. Lentini said that while police have an “area of interest” in terms of how the fire was started, they won’t know for sure until some pieces of evidence have been tested and returned. Lentini added that police were hopeful that building security cameras may shed some additional light on the investigation, as well as video footage from any trains that may have passed by the building earlier in the day. Anyone with additional information is asked to call Belleville Police at 613-9660882.

Industrial road extension passes

News - Belleville - Despite continuing objections from Councillor Jodie Jenkins over excessively costly development promotion, Belleville City Council Monday awarded a

contract for an extension of about half a kilometre on College Street East to provide services to newly purchased land for industrial development. The $6.1-million contract

fulfills plans to acquire new lands for development and service them going back two or three years and costs to get the project rolling this year were included as part of the

Build Belleville infrastructure package passed by council earlier this year. Council was told the work should start almost immediately and should be completed

QSWC pools shut down until September

By Steve Jessel

News - Belleville - After a highly successful opening year, the pools at the Quinte Sports and Wellness Centre are taking a much-needed summer vacation and will be closed from August 26 until September 8 for required annual maintenance. The first round of annual maintenance for the pools will see each of the three pools drained, pool tile work inspected, and each will receive a thorough cleaning of the windows, ledges, pool deck, change rooms, office and storage spaces. This type of maintenance is common for pools this size, and a complete shut-

down is required in order to use heavy maintenance equipment. It will take a full two days to drain the pools because of the overall volume, and an additional five days to refill the pools, heat the water and re-balance the chemical systems. The time period chosen for the pool closure was determined

in consultation with pool user groups. It was recognized that the pool should be open for early September in order to begin annual schedules and operation, and the closing week of August was chosen as many college and university students head back to school that week, many of them pool employees. During the clo-

sure city staff will be hiring and training new staff to prepare for September programs. For more information, contact the Recreation, Culture & Community Services Office at 613-966-4632 or visit <www. quintesportsandwellnesscentre. ca> for updated schedules and information.

within months. Ray Ford, manager of engineering, noted the immediate project only services a portion of the lands the city has acquired by purchase in recent months. Some properties remain in dispute with owners unhappy with the process of expropriation, but they are not included in the 600-metre road extension. The major contract was an opportunity for Councillor Jenkins to continue his arguments about council expenditures, but other councillors defended the original concept, in line

with Economic and Strategic Initiatives Manager Karen Poste, who has long argued that having adequate and serviced land readily available is often a key factor in attracting new economic investment. The major contract was one of several catch-up contracts awarded during council’s only scheduled August meeting. The others were predominantly small jobs included in earlier approved budget sessions. Twice-monthly meetings will resume starting September 9.

News - Belleville - City residents are being advised to take extra precautions against mosquito bites in the coming weeks, as a second and third case of West-Nile infested mosquitoes have been found within Belleville city limits by the Hastings and Prince Edward Counties Health Unit. “It’s to be expected,” said health unit manager of environmental health Dave Dodgson. “We’ve found West Nile regularly over the past number of years and this is an indication that West Nile virus is still with us.” A total of three cases of infected mosquitoes have been found this year, on Foster Avenue, Queen Street, and Brown Street, with the latter two areas being the newest areas of concern. Each summer the health unit puts out about 15 mosquito traps throughout the area, and in 2012 found a total of 12 cases of West Nile infected mosquitoes, leading to one known human case of the disease in the region. “There are particular mosquitoes that transmit West Nile more effectively than others,” Dodgson said. “Some of those are the mosquitos we find in and around developed areas, so that’s why we focus our attention in town.” The majority of individuals infected with West Nile exhibit few to no symptoms, however, the disease can cause health complications in elderly people and those with weakened immune systems. “What the public needs to know is that they should take precautions, particularly around this time of year,” Dodgson said. “August and September are key times for mosquitoes.” Common precautionary tips include avoiding areas with high concentrations of mosquitoes, wearing light coloured clothing, using mosquito repellent containing DEET, draining areas of stagnant water on their property, taking extra precautions from dusk until dawn when mosquitoes are most active, and making sure that home door and window screens are in good repair and have no holes.

the ribs. Five ribbers from Canada and the United States attended this year’s event, and when the final votes were tallied the people’s choice awards had a clear favourite. Hawgs Gone Wild, hailing from Daytona Beach, in Florida, came away with a clean sweep of the people’s choice awards, taking home best chicken, best sauce, and of course, best ribs. For the community VIP judging, Ribs Royale from Las Vegas won best sauce, while Camp 31 out of Alabama took home the trophy for best ribs. Looking ahead to next year, Coculuzzi said that while there aren’t any major changes in store for the format, there are always logistical tweaks to be made to ensure the event continues to run smoothly. “If it wasn’t for the volunteers, my fabulous sponsors, the in-kind donations, my staff, my board … we all came together and worked as a ribfest team,” Coculuzzi said. Money raised from the event helps fund Big Brothers Big Sisters activities and initiatives in the community. For more information, visit <www.bigisneeded.ca>.


2036, the review forecasts that the 5574 age group will increase to 27 per cent from 22 per cent in 2011, and the 75 and older age group is expected to double, up to 20 per cent of the population from ten per cent in 2011. “You have a good location near Lake Ontario, you have an attractive downtown, and the population is a healthy size,” Cook said, when asked why Belleville has proven so popular in the 55 and over age group. “You’re large enough where you have all the amenities … but you’re not so big that you have traffic congestion issues.” Looking at employment figures, the city has seen moderate sustained growth over the past 20 years. Over that period the city employment base has increased to an estimated 32,910, with much of the growth found in the commercial and institutional sectors.

Bike tour bridging the gap

Stirling-Rawdon police report

News - Stirling - Following a twomonth-long investigation into a crash that closed Highway 14 Stirling-Rawdon Police laid criminal charges against a 22-year-old female from Marmora. Charges laid as a result of the single motor vehicle accident include impaired driving causing bodily harm, driving with a blood/alcohol level over 80 causing bodily harm, impaired operation of a motor vehicle, driving with a blood/ alcohol level over 80 milligrams and criminal negligence causing bodily harm. A more recent criminal investigation into the theft of construction material also resulted in a pair of charges against two Stirling men. A 39-year-old male was charged with break and enter and a second man, a 33-year-old, was charged with break and enter and breach of probation. The men were arrested last Tuesday night, police say, while attempting to steal construction material. They will appear in court in September.

on the culture, traditions, history and contemporary issues, the group departed on July 31, sometimes riding over 50 kilometres on their way to a new community. The group wouldn’t bike every day; in some of the places they visited, the tour would facilitate theatre-based workshops aimed at again building relationships both with each other and with members of the community. “The best part [for me] has been experiencing this with these eleven other dynamic and inspired young people who have this vision for a better future, and who want to work towards that,” Quinn said. “Everyone brings such different experiences and different knowledge, so together it’s a much more dynamic process.” One of the participants on the tour was Li Keller, a masters student in

environmental studies at York University. Having participated in a previous Otesha tour with a more ecological focus Keller was no stranger to the work done by the organizations, and she said she wanted to take part in the bike tour in part to better understand the history of indigenous peoples. “I think as a settler living on this land it was really important for me to understand the history of what happened here, and to be part of building relationships that are healing,” she said. “Every day has had so much packed into it, I think it’ll be weeks after that things sink in.” The tour’s final workshop came at the Tyendinaga Pow Wow on August 10 and 11, before the group headed to Belleville for a debrief and a chance to sit down and talk about the experience. Quinn said she’s already had people

asking about a tour next year, and that she’s hopeful participants don’t just treat this as a one-off experience. “For us as organizers it’s important to learn what kind of support people might need to be able to continue with this work,” she said.

News - Belleville - Building relationships is done one step at a time, but for the Nation to Nation Bike Tour, pedalling is the preferred mode of transport. Beginning in the Mohawk community of Akwesasne on July 27, the Nation to Nation Bike Tour saw a group of 12 young people in their 20s and 30s group together to bike roughly 300 kilometres in two weeks, stopping in a number of communities along the way to learn about different cultures and build relationships with the people they met. Organized by the Otesha Project, KAIROS Canada and the community of Akwesasne, the tour is a pilot project, but based on both participant and community reaction KAIROS program co-ordinator Katy Quinn said overall the experience has been a success. “I think people are really excited about this young multicultural group that brings this positive message that gives people a lot of hope for the future,” Quinn said.

continued economic growth. Since 1981, Belleville’s population has grown almost 20 per cent from 41,400 to 49,500, fueled primarily by migration, and in Belleville’s case, migrants over the age of 55. Looking ahead to 2036, the review forecasts that the city population will increase to 58,700 by 2036, an average population growth of about 0.5 per cent per annum. Net migration is expected to increase over that same time period, and again is expected to be dominated by retirees and empty-nesters over the age of 55. Currently, the city has a lower percentage (52 per cent) of adult population age 0 to 44 than the provincial average of 57 per cent, and a higher share (48 per cent) of adults age 45 and over than the provincial average of 43 per cent. Belleville also has a higher median age (44) than the provincial average, and Belleville’s population is also aging faster than the provincial average. By

News - Belleville - The city isn’t getting any younger a recent study commissioned by the city says, however, the city is expected to see sustained growth over the next 25 years, both in terms of population and in employment opportunities. “The one thing that jumped out at us the most, is how much the population is aging,” said Watson & Associates Economists Ltd. associate director Jamie Cook. “It wasn’t the rate of growth that jumped out at us, but just the way the population age structure is changing, and specifically how it’s aging.” In fall of 2011 the city retained Watson & Associates Economists Ltd., in association with Dillon Consulting Ltd. to undertake the preparation of a long-term municipal comprehensive review (MCR) for the city up until the year 2036. This review can then be used to establish a long-term vision and framework for the city that supports

now just have a few to work with the hired garden technician Dana Mandeville and student supervisor Hanna Murray. Dana’s son Devlynd Cavallaro, ten, has also been helping out, along with a staff member’s son Christopher Casey. Kirby noted that the Rotary Club had a one-day leadership workshop there and school groups have been touring through. The DBIA summer students have also helped out. “It’s a good opportunity for them,” she said. She noted the city has been helpful mowing the grass and providing compost. Garden technician Dana Mandeville and student supervisor Hanna Murray have been enjoying the garden. “We have harvested cabbage, lettuce, tomatoes, carrots, eggplant, peas, beans, beets, potatoes, cucumbers, celery, onions, cantaloupe, broccoli and cauliflower,” Dana said. “We also have parsley, basil, rosemary and asparagus, as well as the flowers along the river.” She added that while

they can’t be classified organic, they do follow organic principles by not using artificial fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides. “We released some ladybugs to help out,” Dana said. “We did find a few caterpillars on the cabbage but we just picked them off.” She said there were no tomato hornworms this year either. “I pick them off with my bare hands,” she notes. “I only wear gloves for the zucchini so I don’t get splinters.” Dana said if they extended the season they could replant on some of the beds. She is here until August 27 when she and her son move to Abbotsford, British Columbia, to be with her husband. Hanna is here until August 23 when she goes to University of British Columbia to take courses in honours history and international relations. Dana said the 42 beds in the gardens are interesting work, and she hopes to get more gardening involvement in British Columbia. “I hear it rains there a lot.” Dana Mandeville points out the inside of the cabbage plant which can grow again after the outside leaves are harvested.

News - Trenton - The harvest is good this year at the Community Greenhouse and Gardens, thanks to the green thumbs and care of Community Living who took on the project this year. “It was a real learning curve,” admits Toni Kirby, executive assistant for Community Living Quinte West. The organization took it over from volunteers who had managed it for several years. They had some help from former greenhouse volunteer coordinators Simon and Hazel Berthiaume who had passed on the responsibility. “They helped set us up,”

All change on the Internet

Editorial - Edward Snowden is safe from American “justice” for the moment, and he will certainly go down as the most effective whistle-blower in history. His revelations are going to cause a wholesale restructuring of the world’s most important communications system, the Internet. And that, rather than his whereabouts and fate, is now the real story. On August 8 Lavabit, a U.S.-based email provider that promised to Gwynne Dyer keep itsservice clients’ communications private, closed down. The U.S. National Security Agency approached it about six weeks ago demanding the same access to its customers’ emails that it has already extorted from big American Internet companies like Google, Facebook, Yahoo, Amazon and Microsoft. The company’s owner, Ladar Levison, is under an NSA gag order, but he wrote to his clients: “I have been forced to make a difficult decision: to become complicit in crimes against the American people, or walk away from nearly ten years of hard work by shutting down Lavabit. I would strongly recommend against anyone trusting their private data to a company with physical ties to the United States.” Jon Callas, co-founder of Silent Circle, another encrypted email service that has just shut down because it cannot protect its clients’ data, went even further. “Email (that uses standard Internet protocols) … cannot be secure,” he wrote. The mass surveillance being carried out by the NSA not only gives the U.S. government access to everything Americans say to one another. It also destroys everybody else’s privacy, because the standard Internet routing protocol sends messages not by the shortest route, but by whichever route is fastest and least congested. That means, in most cases, through the United States, and therefore straight into the hands of the NSA. Snowden’s revelations so far have told us about two major NSA surveillance programs, both probably illegal even under American law. The first collects the mobile phone records of over 200 million Americans. Don’t worry your pretty head about that, darling, said Senator Dianne Feinstein, chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee: “This is just metadata, there is no content involved.” The NSA isn’t actually listening to your calls. Well, OF COURSE it isn’t listening to billions of calls. Machines can’t listen to calls, and who has the manpower to do it with human beings? But machines can quickly use the call logs (metadata) to identify everybody you ever talked to, and everybody they ever talked to, and so on out to the fourth or fifth generation.

If one of those thousands of people ever spoke to somebody abroad with a Muslim name (or somebody who works for Siemens, or Samsung, or some other industrial competitor of the United States), they may take an interest in you. If you’re an American who has never had direct phone contact with anybody abroad, they may then apply to access the content of your calls and emails under the Prism program. The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court which reviews such applications has refused precisely ten of them (out of 20,919) since 2001. Besides, the content of most Americans’ messages can probably be examined without recourse to the judges under one of the blanket authorisations issued by FISC. And if you’re not American, or an American resident who once spoke to somebody abroad by phone, then you’re in a free-fire zone. If you are American, you probably don’t care about that, because you are mesmerised by the guff about a huge terrorist threat that the security barons use to justify the endless expansion of their empire (now almost a million employees). A recent opinion poll by the Pew Research Centre found that 62 per cent of Americans think “fighting terrorism” is more important than worrying about personal privacy. But if you belong to the great majority of Internet users who are not American, are not in a perpetual sweaty panic about “terrorism,” and have no protection whatever under American law from the NSA’s spying, then you will want ways to avoid it. So the market, or other governments, will such create ways. What’s needed is a big investment in Internet switching capacity in countries where the spies are not completely out of control. Then non-Americans can just join one of the many servers that will spring up to meet an exploding demand for secure Internet services. Finnish Internet servers are already emphasising the security of their services. Germany, whose memories of the Gestapo and Stasi secret police make it particularly sensitive about the NSA’s spying, may take the lead in building non-U.S. Internet capacity, or it may be big countries like Brazil and India that are relatively invulnerable to U.S. pressure. But this is a huge market opportunity, and it will get done. And the losers? The big U.S. Internet providers, who will find that few of their customers want to store their data in American “cloud” services. “If businesses or governments think they might be spied on,” said Neelie Kroes, vice-president of the European Commission, “they will have less reason to trust the cloud, and it will be [American] cloud providers who ultimately miss out.” As Jennifer Granick, director of civil liberties at the Stanford Law School’s Center for Internet and Society, put it recently: “America invented the Internet, and our Internet companies are dominant around the world. But the U.S. government, in its rush to spy on everybody, may end up killing our most productive industry.”

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

A painful example of radical socialism Dear Editor, It was obvious that in his recent commentary on the demise of Detroit and its forced expedition into bankruptcy, far-left writer Gwynne Dyer did as expected. In his analysis of what happened to the once great city just across the border from Windsor, Dyer simply ignored the forces that turned Detroit into a complete economic basket case. A democratically elected government and the unions, in power for the last half century, are responsible for the Motor City’s plight. Socialists never like to admit that their idea of a political system nearly always ends in a financial collapse much like Detroit. Other U.S. cities and some on the Canadian side face the same inevitable collision course if they continue to march to the same socialist drummer. As someone pointed out earlier, Detroit has been a laboratory for leftist policies for the past 50 years—a city once described

as an ideological utopia. The sad state of affairs is that this toxic liberal governance that Obama represents will eventually bring down America as an entire nation. It’s happening right under the noses of the American electorate and they don’t even recognize the catastrophe. Don’t forget, Detroit has received millions of dollars in federal subsidies over the years to help keep it afloat. The money line has simply run out because of corruption and bad decisions. Socialism doesn’t have a rescue plan. It depends on stealing dollars from the hard-working taxpayers to pay for the boondoggles but eventually the money runs out. Detroit is just the first major example of what you can expect from the legacy of corrupt leftist politics, bureaucrats and union bosses. Unfortunately it’s coming to more U.S. and Canadian jurisdictions unless the voters see the light real soon. Rolly Ethier, Campbellford

Turning an obstacle into a community opportunity By Richard Turtle Editorial - Necessity doesn’t have to be the mother of invention. Sometimes common sense can result in some pretty good ideas even when there’s no real need. Such was the case with the recent Registration Fair, held at the Stirling Curling Club and organized by a pair of municipal workers who, when faced with a minor inconvenience, turned it into an opportunity to make connections. The event was something of a community-based trade fair made up of representatives from more than 30 local special interest groups operating in the area who provided registration and contact information as well as details on memberships and the objectives or services offered by the individual clubs and organizations.  It wasn’t an overwhelming success, with lineups at every table and crowds clamouring for memberships, but it wasn’t expected to be like that. It was just expected to be the beginning of something. A few giant steps past the idea part, but still just the beginning. And certainly a good start. Scheduled from 6 to 9 p.m. on a Thursday night, the community information open house attracted about 200 people over the course of the evening. There were displays and pamphlets and banners and posters and videos. Nothing extravagant and nothing unnecessary. There were demonstrations in martial arts and dance, samples of various club members’ work, the tools of various trades and ample opportunity to learn more. To hear Stirling Arena Manager Richard Dean explain it, it all makes perfect sense. The rink fields calls on a regular basis with questions about sports and other community activities, often completely unrelated to arena functions, and while that information may not always be at their fingertips, Dean and his staff are expected to steer callers in the right direction. The same is true of municipal offices. A complete and updated list of any kind, Dean says, would have been nice to have. It was a sentiment he knew he shared with Stirling-Rawdon Economic Development Officer Cassandra Boniface. And this year, with planned arena renovations disrupting the normal schedule through the summer, and with winter sports registrations normally held in the arena foyer, Dean thought it logical to avoid the construction zone altogether and shift the sign-up formalities over to the adjoining curling rink. And, for convenience sake, perhaps they could hold a registration at the same time. And if there is going to be a small group of sports associations providing registration for parents or

grandparents who are accompanying young children, he thought, why not expand the list? In fact, why not open it up to all community groups? And then maintain a list. Why not indeed. So with the help and support of Boniface from the outset, a partial list of local organizations was hastily compiled in the spring and invitations issued, both directly and indirectly, in the hopes that word would spread to potential participants as well as visitors. Boniface and Dean freely admit the list was far from complete by show time this year but they intend to continue to build on it and make the Stirling-Rawdon and District Active Community Expo an annual event, providing an opportunity for local groups to promote themselves, solicit new members or simply let people know what they do in the community. Doubtless next year’s edition will offer some surprises to local residents who attend. Because there’s an awful lot out there. And local organizations, whether service clubs, athletic associations, youth movements, social service providers, support groups, choirs, artistic collectives, special interest schools and classes or non-profit groups, all stand to gain by being given a once-a-year opportunity to show a community what it’s made of, and made up of. Sometimes there truly is nothing to do in a small town. But sometimes there are resources in our own back yards that, for one reason or another, we’ve overlooked entirely. Sometimes there are like-minded people who are willing to share their talents and skills. Sometimes there are communityminded volunteers who simply haven’t bumped into the right opportunity. Or the right people. And sometimes someone will put all that together and come up with an idea. But if it means extra work, only very rarely will that someone take it a step further. Dean and Boniface say there were a few bumps along the way and lessons learned this year, on the part of both participants and organizers, but plans for improvements are already in the works. That’s good news. As a cultural resource, a yearly community expo not only offers access to the latest club and contact information for those who need it most, but also provides a snapshot of the interests, passions and talents shared within its borders. And it can tell you some very important things about where you live. A community expo was a very good idea. And it has grown beyond that already. Time for people to start stealing it.

Agreement shared with community By Ray Yurkowski

News - Brighton - Back in June, when council approved an agreement between CAO Gayle Frost and the Corporation of the Municipality of Brighton, few details were made public because of the confidential nature of closed-door meetings. On Monday night, the particulars were released and much more. “We felt, to be transparent, it was important for this agreement to be shared with the community,” explained Councillor Mike Vandertoorn. “However, I feel it’s also very important for people to know and understand the reasons for such an agreement. “It’s a recognized fact across Ontario

that municipalities are facing an upcoming shortage of qualified senior management over the next five to ten years. That situation is going to lead to the possibility municipalities with attractive working environments and job benefits being able to hire away qualified managers and given the extensive negative publicity during this term of council, we have become a prime target for recruiters.” “Lack of communication and constant attempts at micromanagement by some members of council have led us to this unfortunate situation,” added Councillor Emily Rowley. “This agreement will ensure CAO Frost will be able to continue her work with some measure of security

and will save this municipality a lot of money in attempting to recruit and train replacement employees.” After more than 20 minutes of debate and a new motion approving the release of background information that led to the agreement, Councillor Mary Tadman left council chambers saying, “I will not sit through the debate.” “This agreement is entirely consistent with other agreements we, unfortunately, have had to put together this term,” said Deputy-mayor Craig Kerr. “Employment agreements have never been required in previous terms of council [but] we now have a union agreement, the non-union employee agreement and

an employment agreement with our CAO. The underlying purpose in all these agreements is to provide security of employment and freedom from a poisoned work environment and they have become necessary due to the persistent and abusive behaviour of two members of this council toward staff. This behaviour dates from the early months of this term of council and it’s been unrelenting since then. “In January, the CAO’s work environment became so poisoned by such actions, she filed a detailed complaint with council and requested we formalize the conditions of her employment.” Allegations of a “hit list” to thin

the ranks of municipal employees have swirled throughout the community since the last election campaign in 2010. Proof of that allegation came in the form of a letter and invoice sent in July by municipal lawyers Templeton Menninga, regarding an “employment matter.” “You will note the billings in this matter began in August of 2011,” wrote lawyer Suzanne Hunt. “Initially, Maureen Houston and I had been retained by Mayor Walas, on behalf of council, to draft termination paperwork with respect to Ms. Frost’s employment. Several meetings and phone calls were held with Mayor Walas and he was ultimately provided with the termination package, along with some guidelines and our opinion letter in October 2011. Shortly thereafter, we were informed by Mayor Walas that Ms. Frost’s termination was “on hold” and we were requested to stand by until further notice.” “At no time had Mayor Walas sought or obtained council approval for such action,” said Kerr. “In fact, the first knowledge the municipality had of this matter came two years after the fact. The invoice involved an unauthorized expenditure of approximately $5,400 of public funds.” Council approved getting an independent legal opinion on how to proceed. “There’s been a serious breach of trust here,” said Vandertoorn. “In the spring of 2011, I was approached by members of this council and asked specifically if I would be the fourth vote to have CAO Frost terminated,” added Councillor Tom Rittwage. “The conversation was typically between myself and one other member of council and I was not given a specific reason other than the fact she was not liked by those who wished to have her fired.” “Did you attempt to have Gayle Frost fired in the spring of 2011?” Rittwage asked the mayor. “And, if you did, was it for the good of Brighton or the good of Mark Walas?” Walas refused to answer either question.


News - Batawa - Quinte Zombie Zone 2013 was a fantastic success with over 300 spectators and participants out to take in the beautiful Zombie filled family day out at Batawa Ski Hill. The day began with our Mini “Zombits” event sponsored by Tim Hortons. Lots of kids arrived to participate in running events with the zombie theme of survival. The tots ran, jumped and scurried around earning colours that completed the requirements for survival. Kids were each presented with a Tim Hortons Mini Zombits Survivor medal.

Zombies take over the ski hill Then, even more kids came out for the youth one-kilometre run. Through a muddy trail, youth ran and enjoyed the zombie infested trail. Zombies reached, moaned and came out of the forest as the kids ages nine to 13 ran through. Their faces were full of excitement and delight; many wanted the experience to be longer. The focus event of the day was the five-kilometre trail run, where four zones of zombies were scattered throughout the challenging trail. Runners had three flags representing im-

munity, which the zombies tore from their Velcro belts. Some survived, but most were infected. The Quinte Zombie Zone was a huge success with participants already planning on attending next year’s event. Some are planning to enter teams sponsored by corporations, others are going to switch over to the dark side and register to be zombies. We expect to double our attendance next year, which is awesome for the

fund-raising aspect as all proceeds go directly to Quinte West Youth Centre. Batawa Ski Hill also benefits bringing lots of new people to the hill, many who never had been there and were impressed with it’s beauty. Race Director Connie Nye-Kaley would like to thank the Quinte Zombie Zone race committee for all their hard work in planning and setting up for this event. Each person came with their own passion and commitment to

ensuring its success. Of course, the event couldn’t happen without some fantastic sponsorship from Tim Hortons, Batawa Ski Hill, Frontenac Ski Patrol, PJ’s, Market High Advertising, Nestle and Brighton Springs. Planning for next year’s event is already under way. Quinte Zombie Zone is scheduled for Saturday August 16, again at the beautiful Batawa Ski Hill. More attractions are likely to be attached to the event for 2014.

Cadets earn their wings at graduation parade By Kate Everson

News - CFB Trenton Army cadets from across Canada, who have been training in Trenton for the past five weeks at Trenton Air Cadet Summer Training Centre in conjunction with the Canadian Army Advanced Warfare Centre (CAAWC), graduated from the Canadian Forces (CF) Basic Parachutist Course on Friday, August 9. The cadets were joined by three officers who are members of the Cadet Instructors Cadre of the Canadian Forces Reserve who participated in the course alongside the cadets. “The candidates for the course were selected after a gruelling process where only a select few were chosen,” said Lieutenant Terri-Leigh Saunders, Public Affairs Officer. Cadets from coast to coast arrived in Trenton on the Canada Day long weekend, spending two weeks doing intense physical fitness training in preparation for the CF Basic Parachutist Course. Following the initial two weeks, cadets along with their escort officers then crossed the road where they all began the formal part of their training with the Parachute Instructors at CAAWC. Throughout the course candidates have been taught

the importance of safety and physical fitness in addition to the basics right through to the specifics of jumping out of a perfectly good plane! The candidates have spent countless hours honing their skills and meeting all of the standards that a regular or reserve force military member would have to meet in order to receive their coveted “jump wings.”

“The candidates for the course were selected after a gruelling process where only a select few were chosen.” The Reviewing Officer for their graduation parade was Lieutenant Colonel Francois Dufault, MSM, CD, Commanding Officer for the Canadian Forces Land Advanced Warfare Centre. Dufault graduated with honours from the U.S. Marine Corps Command and Staff College and also holds an Academic Master Study in War Studies with the Royal Military College of Canada. The graduation was held at Baker Island, originally scheduled for outside, but

because of an early morning rain the program was held inside the building. There was no march or parade, but cadets formed a semi-circle inside, with parents eagerly jumping in to take pictures. Cadets came from all across Canada. The only local cadet was Eric Clarke from Brighton, son of Evette and David Clarke. “It was a hard course,” he said. “Defi-

nitely a challenge.” Clarke is taking a year off and then signing up for the army and going “wherever they post me.” A graduation parade was held the same day at Mountain View for the glider cadets after an intensive six-week program.

Entertainment - Trenton - The amphitheatre was alive with the good ol’ sounds of Grampa’s Goodtime Gang on Sunday night, surrounded by old cars and people.

“The band has been around for twenty years.” “The band has been around for twenty years,” said Bob Wannamaker at the Norampac Summer Concert Series. He noted this band is sponsored by the Trenton Rotary Club and each concert has a sponsor. The August 18 concert is 413 Wing Pipes and Drums with McGreevy and Hardman and the McGilly Dancers getting ready for the September Scottish Irish festival in the park, August 21 is the Fade Kings, August 25 is The Variety with Dan Shaer and August 28 is Bay City Swing Band. The concert series ends on September 1 with Ragged Glory, an acoustic Neil Young tribute. The free concerts are from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. The Quinte Access Sunday Classic Car Show and barbecue was also held at the amphitheatre on Sunday night. Nadyne Mattis was helping flip burgers and selling 50/50 tickets at the site. She said next Sunday, August 18, the car show will be at the Trenton Rowing and Paddling Club with The Reasons band sponsored by the Seasons Dufferin retirement community. Another car show coming up on Friday, August 16, at the Canadian Tire parking lot in Trenton from 5 to 8 p.m. will offer prizes for the top three cars and music by Ken King as well as a barbecue. Grampa’s Goodtime Gang comes from Prince Edward County and has

Stephen “Animal” Empringham on drums, Blake Found on fiddle and mandolin, Graham “Cracker” Fraser on keyboards and vocals, Bud Gregory on accordion and harmonica, Larry Roebuck on lead guitar and Bruce Snider on bass guitar. Their next gig is at Milford Fair and parade on September 14 and at Wellington Pumpkinfest on October 19 from 1 to 3 p.m. Don’t forget Friday night concerts in the park put on by the Trenton DBIA in Fraser Park at the Ted Snider Band Shell from 6 to 8 p.m. with the Shadows on August 16, the Fiddleheads on August 23 and closing out with Ragged Glory on August 30. This weekend the amphitheatre will be filled with the sounds of the BMW Loonie-Tic motorcycle riders from August 16 to 18. Visitors are welcome to come out and see the bikes.

the door and start hiding things,” offered Councillor Mike Vandertoorn. “I’m sorry, but I can’t go along with that at all.” “The behaviour around this table dictates whether or not we need an integrity commissioner,” said Councillor Tom Rittwage. “There is clearly a need to have one because the folks who live in this community need to know what’s going on. There has to be accountability when people decide they are above our bylaws and that’s what we have an integrity commissioner for.” “It strikes me that, if we want to save money, then we need to clean up our behavioural act and start following the legislation, the code of conduct, the bylaws and all the things that are laid down for the civil conduct of municipal business,” said Deputy-mayor Craig Kerr. “This motion smacks of someone who has been getting too many speeding tickets and wants to get rid of the police.” “I believe very strongly in the integrity commissioner,” added Mayor Mark Walas. “I welcomed the appointment. It is a necessary evil in today’s

world. There should be an opportunity, whether a member of the public or a member of council, to come forward and have an unbiased third party to be available to assist in deviation when required. It has been unfortunate, during this term of council, there have been a number of issues, which have come forward to the integrity commissioner and we continue to deal with them as best we can.” “When you have a council code of conduct, complaints are investigated by an integrity commissioner,” explained CAO Gayle Frost. “If we get a request, we have to have an integrity commissioner investigate it.” “How do some municipalities not have an integrity commissioner?” wondered Tadman. “They don’t have a code of conduct,” said Frost. “I have a hard time believing that,” said Tadman. In a recorded vote, Walas, Kerr, Rittwage, Vandertoorn and Councillor Emily Rowley voted against the proposal.

News - Brighton - At their regular meeting on Monday night, municipal council voted to retain their contract with integrity commissioners Amberley Gavel. But, as they found out, it wasn’t much of a choice. A notice of motion was filed at the July 15 meeting by Councillors Mary Tadman and John Martinello recommending, “the contract between the integrity commissioner and the Municipality of Brighton be immediately terminated.” “When this was brought forward, I voted against hiring an integrity commissioner,” explained Tadman, who brought the motion forward. “I feel you can’t buy integrity.” “I think there are better ways to spend taxpayers’ money,” added Martinello. “It’s proved ineffective. There has been no net change in the performance of this council after the first integrity commissioner’s investigation.” “This is far from consistent to being transparent if we’re just going to shut

Kiwanis Family Day at fire training centre showcases services up free hamburgers and hot dogs and offered drinks. Sparky the Fire Dog lapped it up. “I’m showing people what it’s like inside the back of an ambulance,” said Hasting Quinte EMS paramedic Kim Curry, pointing out to

nine-year-old Victoria Sukha what her heartbeat looked like on the monitor. Tyler Brooker, three, and his brother Ryan, one, checked out the back of the fire rescue van in their own firefighter suits.

Their father and mother are paramedics and their grandfather is a firefighter. Kiwanian Louise Sandercock said firefighter Glen Milligan organized the family day sponsored by the Trenton Kiwanis

Club as an opportunity to showcase emergency services to the community. “It’s important that families know what is available,” she said, noting that this could be an annual event.

News - Trenton - It was a lovely day at the fire training centre, the sun was shining, the car was burning and smoke was pouring into the air. It was all part of the Kiwanis Family Day showcasing emergency services of fire, police and ambulance. “The fire training complex has been here since 1984,” said Chuck Naphan.

Sparky the Fire Dog has a chat with Leland LeBlanc, five, from Trenton. The land is leased from the city for a Photo: Kate Everson dollar a year, but the buildings are all maintained by the volunteers in the fire departments. He said about 400 to 500 firefighters train throughout the year. “We burn over a hundred cars a year here,” he said. As he spoke, firefighters set up a wrecked car with flammable fabric and wood and set it on fire. Smoke spewed through the air, as families watched No More Travelling to Bigger Cities behind bright orange pylons in the and Now Much More Affordable safety zone.

News - Tweed - Quinte Conservation sponsored the first Family Nature Day at the Tweed Memorial Park on Friday, August 9, and had lots of snakes, bugs, watershed displays and other reptiles on display. Amy Kellar, a student working for Quinte Conservation for the summer, said she is part of running a day camp out of Belleville. A portion of their mandate is to provide an educational opportunity around the watershed for different people in the community. She was the lead person in organizing the Family Day event. “This year was a trial run for the Nature Days and so far it has gone very well and we are very happy with the turnouts

and the results. We are doing the Family Nature Day in order to give families a chance to come out and learn about habitat protection, water protection as well as species at risk. During our reptile show they talk a lot about species at risk but it also gives the kids a chance to have a hands-on experience with the reptiles and get comfortable.” Amy went on to say they have done eight Family Nature Days throughout the region with their last one being at Mississauga Point in Prince Edward County the following day. She added, “The bug display teaches the kids about the bugs in our local waterways and how we can assess the health of the water by counting the bugs in the water and we have also been doing crafts and games with the kids to keep things fun.” Asked what she hopes the children gain out of the exhibits Amy said, “We are hoping to get the message about environmental protection across and raise awareness amongst the kids.” Jenny Peirce, owner of Sciensational Sssnakes, said she is very pleased to have Quinte Conservation sponsoring Alexandra King and Cameron Estabrooks look on while Quinte Conservation’s Amy Kellar explains a little about the watershed her company to come and educate the at a Family Nature Day in Tweed.

‘conservation through education’ and definitely for reptiles education is the key; to be able to inform people who live right here about these animals is a fantastic opportunity for us and for the general public. There is no fee; we ask for a donation but the opportunity is open to everyone to learn. The nice thing is it is not just reptiles, but the water displays and educational games help create a more complete learning environment.” Jenny said she has been working with a number of conservation associations in Ontario and said she has worked with Quinte Conservation for many years at their summer camps. “We have had a number of children show up at these displays who say they remember the snakes and reptiles from camp; it is great to see how much they recall.” Jenny said her business has been going for over 20 years and they go all over the province.

Local fair will benefit from the recent Mud Bog By Judy Backus

the spectators to and from the parking area at the Jamboree site. A total of 12 classes, including one for ATVs which didn’t quite fit into a specific category, called Run What You Brung, attracted a registration of 32

ATVs whose drivers attempted to avoid becoming bogged down in the mire while racing against time from one end of the pit to the other. Mud flew, mucky water splashed everywhere and the crowd cheered as

the determined drivers entered the bog, with some traversing its length without difficulty, while others had trouble from the start, having to coax their vehicles to meet the murky challenge. At the end of the day, Laura Kelsh

commented of the Mud Bog, saying, “For the first time ever in Marmora, it was very successful and we hope it will be bigger and better next year. We hope to add some activities for the kids and will have more vendors present.”

Gary Benoit, aboard his side-by-side ATV, was among the first to try his luck at navigating the 150-foot-long water filled trench during the August 10 Mud Bog held in support of the Marmora Fair. Photo: Judy Backus R0012151161

News - Marmora - The first local ATV Mud Bog, an off-road motor sport event, sponsored by Dans Speed and Custom, received enthusiastic support from both onlookers and participants. A 150-footlong, 12-foot-wide trench filled with 10,000 gallons of water was set up in a field just south of town owned by Jeff and Kelly Curtis. It took a team of involved volunteers, including Dianne Ray, Laura Kelsh, Kelly Curtis, Jim Cuddy, Brad Davidson, Suzan Cuddy, Maxine Bell, Tracey Derry, and Bob Leonard, six weeks to organize the event, which was held in support of the Marmora Fair. They called upon others within the area to help in specific ways, with Randy Love clearing the land; Jason Derry of Kawartha Stone Works undertaking the excavation of the pit which was filled with water by George Bailey who also helped out with the wash station. Murray Kloosterman Trucking donated the float to transport the excavator, and C. Smith Bus Lines provided shuttle service for

I Pledge: My Head to clearer thinking. My Heart to greater loyalty, My Hands to larger service, My Health to better living, For my club, my community and my country.

Hastings County 4-H Animal Friends Press Reporter Summary The animal friends club is an awesome opportunity for animal loving kids to get to know all different species better. We go around to farms in our area and learn about the different ways to care for animals and the reasons they raise them. There are lots of different ways people can take care of their animals and they are all used for many different reasons. The kids enjoy this club very much because there are always so many new things to learn about every meeting. This year, we have had 3 meetings so far. Our first meeting was at Harder’s Heritage Farm in Stirling. This farm is off the grid and they use solar and wind to power their home and barn. They have 15 solar panels and one large wind turbine. They only use appliances that they need to use most like a stove, fridge and a washing machine. They try to avoid using a dryer by using a clothes line. The animals we saw at this farm were very interesting. They had a dairy cow for milk and cheese, they have chickens for eggs, they have pigs for meat and 6 horses for farm work. The horses were trained to plow the fields and they also took us on a fun wagon ride! Our next meeting, we went to Earth Haven Farm in Thomasburg. This farm is one of a kind and they have worked extremely hard to get where they are today. They moved from Toronto a few years ago and

bought a land with only a house and two barns. In the last few years, they have built a green house, a very large garden, an addition onto their house and they put in solar panels. We went on a full tour of their farm and we saw their green house, their highland cattle, some peacocks, chickens, and their garden. They use their cattle for meat and they also sell to the public. They use their chickens for eggs and they also make good composters. Their manure is great for the gardens. The garden is almost an acre large and they have all types of vegetables. Every weekend they sell their produce in Toronto. Our 3rd meeting, we went to the Quinte Humane Society. When we were there, we got to meet all of their cats and dogs. We took each of the dogs on a nice walk and they all really enjoyed it. It was fun meeting all of them and they are all so nice. We went inside to see the cats and they had a couple rooms with about 15 cats in each. They were very cute! Our next meeting is at a bee farm and we are going to learn about how they take care of honey bees. Hopefully, we might get a taste! Every year, we go to the Toronto Zoo as a year-end trip and this year we are going in September.

Black Bear Ridge among the top courses in Canada By Steve Jessel

EMC Sports - Belleville - The accolades continue to pour in for Black Bear Ridge Golf Course in Belleville, as after the course was ranked in the top 30 golf courses in Canada by American magazine Golf Digest earlier this year, Black Bear Ridge has been recently ranked in the top 59 courses in Canada by Score Golf, coming in at number 35 for 2013. “Obviously we’re pleased as punch to be rated like that,” said Black Bear

Ridge owner and designer Brian Magee. The ranking puts Black Bear Ridge in the company of some of the most recognizable golf courses in Canada, including Muskoka Bay, Glen Abbey, Wooden Sticks, St. Andrew’s by the Sea, and Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge. This recognition is huge for the Bay of Quinte, says Bay of Quinte Tourism president Ryan Williams, who said that rankings like this are slowly turning the area into a tourist destination for

golfers. “It is great to see Black Bear Ridge on the list once again,” said Williams in a release. “The Bear was ranked #30 this year by Golf Digest Magazine as well, and highlights to us great golf in this region all over, including Timber Ridge, Trillium Wood, Loyalist Golf and Country Club, and more.” The top 59 format of ScoreGolf’s rankings is new to 2013 having previously help a top-100 competition, but the criteria remained the same. First,

a panel of 125 golfers with a passion for the game and who frequently travel across the country were selected. The panelists’ expenses were not paid, and they receive no remuneration for their time. Courses are then rated by beauty, strategy, challenge and design, with each category carrying a weighting of 15 per cent. Conditioning, par threes, par fours, and pars are given five per cent weighting, and fun gets the heaviest weighting at 20 per cent. With this in mind, Magee said that he generally places more emphasis on the Golf Digest rankings as he feels they are more scientific, and that he feels they should be in fact ranked higher than number 35 in the ScoreGolf rankings. “I think we’d be higher if we had more raters look at it,” Magee said. “It’s sort of a long way from everywhere for most of them.” When asked if there was any one criteria of the rankings that Black Bear focuses on, Magee said it was all important when designing and maintaining a course that’s accessible for everyone. Aspects such as speed of

the greens, conditions of the fairways, course progression, diversity from hole to hole and changes in elevation are just a few of the extra criteria Golf Digest Magazine uses when compiling their rankings. “In everything that we do, we simply try to make it the best that we can,” Magee said. Looking to the future, Magee said it’s a time of reflection in the golf industry, as courses consider adding newer, shorter tees for women and children, and examine the possibilities of 12-hole courses as opposed to the standard 18. In any case, it’s all about growing the appeal of the game to as many people as possible, and as Magee said, “women and kids are an integral part of the future of the game.” “At the end of the day, for 99 per cent of the people who play golf, it’s fun, and it’s recreation,” he said. “It’s the opportunity, even if your total score isn’t any good, to have three or four or five wonderful shots that stay with you, and you can feel proud about.”

Squirt Bandits bring home silver from Provincials Sports - The G.D. Jewell Engineering Inc. Squirt Belleville Bandits were in action last weekend, participating in the Ontario Amateur Softball Association (OASA) Provincial Championships in Napanee. Belleville finished a more than respectable second, bringing home the silver medal. Sunday morning saw the Bandits face off against another eastern rival, the Spring Brook Royals. Having lost to Belleville in the Eastern Ontario finals, Spring Brook was looking to knock off the eastern champions. It was not meant to be as Belleville came out firing on all cylinders scoring five runs in the first inning on their way to a six-inning 13 - 3 mercy of the Royals. Fencott (8K 3H 2BB) went the distance on the mound for the Bandits. A balanced attack by Belleville was the difference as

eight players hit safely. Vos led the way on offence once again with a double and two singles. Lasher (3B), Sager (2B,1B), Degenova (2-1B), Piperini (1B), Adams (1B), Babcock (1B) and Glenn (1B) rounded out the offense. In their fourth game, second of the day, the Bandits came up against Innerkip. Trailing 2 - 1 through four, the Bandits managed to bust things open in the fifth scoring three runs to take a 4 - 2 lead. Belleville followed with one in the 6th and three in the 7th to manufacture a hard earned 8 - 2 victory. Lasher (6K 6H 3BB) was solid on the mound for Belleville allowing just six hits over 6 1/3 innings. Fencott came in for the final two outs of the game. The Belleville bats cooled off slightly, producing seven hits in the game. (Piperini (2-1B), Adams (2-1B),

Sager (1B), Lasher (1B), Liam Walsh (1B)). The third game of the day turned out to be the grudge match Belleville wanted. Having lost to the host team on Saturday, the Bandits could guarantee themselves a silver medal with a win over the Napanee Express. After a very close game, Belleville managed to walk away with a hard fought 6 - 4 victory. Fencott (6K 7H 2BB) toed the rubber for the Bandits going a strong 6 2/3 innings before getting knocked out of the game by a hard hit ball back to the mound. Lasher came in to collect the final two outs of the game. The Bandits offence was led by Babcock with a double and a single. Piperini, Vos, Glenn and Walsh all chipped in with singles. Elated and exhausted, the

Bandits moved on to their fourth and championship game to face an undefeated team from Belmore. A well-oiled machine, Belmore had allowed only two runs over three short games in which they mercied all of their opponents. Belleville’s fate would be no better. Simply over matched, the game was over after five innings with Belleville on the short end of a 12 - 1 score. The highlight for Belleville was a single in the

bottom of the 5th inning by Jacob Glenn which broke up the no hit bid by the Belmore pitcher and produced the Bandits’ only run. Babcock and Lasher split time on the mound for Belleville who did great work against a very tough offence. Belleville finished the tournament with a 4 - 2 record. The Squirt Bandits were led by coach Don Goodfellow with help from assistants Andrew Babcock, Dave Lasher and Kyle Adams.

Team members included Zack Goodfellow, Drew Babcock, Nate Lasher, Brayden Adams, Andrew Grouchy, Liam Walsh, Ethan Piperini, Derek Vos, Matt Sager, Dakota Degenova, Jacob Glenn and Brock Fencott. That wraps up the season for the Bandits who finish with a 34 6 record, Eastern Ontario Softball League Champions and Ontario Amateur Softball Association “A” Silver Medallists.

News - Tyendinaga - The rhythmic pounding of the drum accompanied by the twisting vocals of Native singers filled the air at the 26th annual Tyendinaga Pow Wow this past weekend, and this year the theme celebrated and honoured exactly that: the significance of the community drum. “The drum is sacred to the community … it’s the heartbeat of the community,” said Tyendinaga Pow Wow committee member Paul Latchford. “Other people see it as music, we see it as who we are … it’s part of our history, and our culture, and our traditions.” Thousands of people congregated at Tsi Tkerhitoton Park this past weekend for a celebration of the Tyendinaga Mohawk culture and community, and while attendance numbers are not recorded, early estimates had more than 4,000 people attend

The expected traditional First Nations dress did not disappoint, as many dancers wore massively colourful outfits that shook and swayed with each step. Photo: Steve Jessel

the annual event this year. Those that did take in the Pow Wow were treated to a magnificent display of culture, ranging from performances from dozens of colourful, vibrant dancers to the carefully crafted wares and foods on display from the scores of vendors al across the park grounds. “It’s all about culture … the traditions, the practices, the ceremonies, there’s a real mix,” Latchford said. “It honours all nations.” For many, the main attraction would have likely been the dancing, accompanied by live drumming and singing from a variety of first nations communities from across the province. The dancers, in traditional dress of their ancestors performed striking, evocative dances, with both young and old displaying their customs.

IT’S EASY TO SEE WHY CANADIANS CHOOSE THE HONDA CIVIC OVER EVERY OTHER CAR YEAR AFTER YEAR.

Language is empowering

OPEN Let’s get HOUSE!!! you to work!

“When we can display that we value who we are … I think it’s a big opportunity to acknowledge that our language and our culture, traditions, medicines, practices, dress, ways of knowing are all valued,” Latchford said. One of the most encouraging signs for Latchford was the number of children at the event this year, as he acknowledges

nd

that the Tyendinaga Pow Wow committee aren’t getting any younger as the years go on. “The little ones, when they can speak the language, that’s very empowering,” he said. “I didn’t have that opportunity, so when we see the young ones [speaking the language] it just means so much.” Visitors to the Pow Wow came from across the country, and even from as far as

Germany for a chance to soak up traditional First Nations culture. It’s all about making people feel welcome Latchford said, something they stress every year when planning the event. “[People] will come because they know it is a safe place,” Latchford said. “They can come and feel equal, valued and respected. If you offer those three things, anyone will come.”

Busy days ahead for Trent Hills farmer accepted into leadership program News - Trent Hills - Lori Caughey will be busier than usual over the next 19 months. The 36-year-old dairy farmer, hog producer, sausage maker, 4-H leader, school council president, fair board director, and married mother of four daughters has been accepted into the Advanced Agricultural Leadership Program (AALP). Caughey and 28 other current and emerging leaders in Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s agriculture, agri-food and rural sectors will â&#x20AC;&#x153;see, learn, meet, discuss and debate issues impacting [their] sectors over an extended period of time,â&#x20AC;? said Rob Black, CEO of the Rural Ontario Institute, the organization that delivers the program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very happy to have been accepted,â&#x20AC;? Caughey said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about â&#x20AC;Ś maximizing your leadership potential.â&#x20AC;? After an orientation session, the program begins with a four-day seminar on leadership next month in Stratford. Seven more seminars will follow, in Belleville, Chatham, Toronto, Sudbury, Ottawa, Guelph and London, along with two study tours (one to take place in Washington, D.C., the other still to be determined). In a news release announcing the 16 females and 13 males who had been chosen for AALPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 15th class, the Rural Ontario Institute said participants will â&#x20AC;&#x153;learn about leadership and organizational development theories

and practices, government and political processes, economics, trade policy, global affairs, sector and industry related issues in Ontario and globally through North American and International study travel components.â&#x20AC;? The curriculum has been revised to shorten the length of some seminars and to add some online components, Black said. Caughey said the seminars on subjects such as the political process, urban society and media, Canadian/American relations, and globalization and trade, are relevant to the business she and her husband, Ben Godden, run as dairy farmers, milking 62 cows on their farm southeast of Campbellford. They rely on supply management to keep their operation proďŹ table but â&#x20AC;&#x153;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an issueâ&#x20AC;? with trading partners, such as the United States, Caughey said. But one of the reasons she applied to be admitted into the program is that her interest in politics has increased â&#x20AC;&#x153;because of the wind turbine issue.â&#x20AC;? Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ ghting a project thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been proposed on Amherst Island, near Kingston, â&#x20AC;&#x153;where all my family is,â&#x20AC;? she said. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s done â&#x20AC;&#x153;quite a bit of talking to politicians, been to Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Park â&#x20AC;Ś trying to engage with the Ontario government,â&#x20AC;? Caughey said. She realized â&#x20AC;&#x153;that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard and you need to have some training to really make a difference.â&#x20AC;? Cathy Redden, a Campbellford resident whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a member of the instituteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s board of directors, said the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goal, through AALP and the Steps to Leadership program, â&#x20AC;&#x153;is to give leaders and organizations in rural Ontario tools to become better than what Lori Caughey added to her already busy schedule by applying and being accepted into the 15th class of the Advanced Agricultural Leadership they are, to support them ... Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an incredible Program, offered by the Rural Ontario Institute. She and her husband, Ben Godden, operate a dairy farm southeast of Campbellford, as well as raise hogs for sausages they make. Photo: John Campbell program.â&#x20AC;?

FAMILY DENTAL CENTRE WELCOMES TWO NEW PARTNERS

Family Dental Centre--- with conveniently located

offices in Frankford, Belleville, and Cobourg--- is proud to announce that they are welcoming Dr. Ramez Salti and Dr. Yasmin Monemdjou as full partners with Dr. Steve Mascarin. Dr. Steve has owned the Family Dental Centre for 20 years and will continue to be available to his patients. Dr. Yasmin Monemdjou has demonstrated her caring, compassionate nature as she has provided care for FDC patients for the past seven years. Dr. Yasmin provides all aspects of dentistry, with all age groups, including oral sedation for anxious children and adults. We are proud to announce that, as a result of her extensive placement of invisible braces, Dr. Yasmin was invited to attend a worldwide Invisalign conference. Dr. Ramez Salti, also has been practicing at the Family Dental Centre for seven years and proven

Haggerty welcomed the small crowd and introduced several of the volunteers who have spent many months behind the scenes planning the 2013 edition of the Hastings County Plowing Match and Farm Show, noting there will be several special events this year. Treasurer Bruce DeMille announced that organizers will make a donation of $5,000 to the Trenton Memorial Hospital fund in memory of Evelyn Burkitt, who passed away earlier this year. Burkitt had long served as the show’s Family Program Chair and will be honoured in a ceremony and presentation on the second day of the show at the Family Tent.
Hastings County Plowmen’s Association representative Harry Danford also spoke briefly on plans to expand the existing Loyalist College Bursary program, with details expected in the near future. Haggerty also announced that the guest speaker at the opening ceremonies will be Rosemary Davis, who will discuss some of the agricultural successes in Hastings County. Highly regarded for her own agricultural work, he says, “her name’s known all over the county.” Site Co-ordinator Ross Carlisle described the location at 255 Fairgrounds Road as an exceptional one, adding hosts Doug Parr and Bruce Philp have been an important part of the puzzle. “People are eager to help out,” he says, “and we’re always able to find an appropriate location.” And with more than 300 participating exhibitors, this year’s show could be the biggest yet. Along the tent city, the plan for the show site also requires space for parking, an expanse of field for plowing competitions and plenty of open air for both stationary and working exhibits, including a large antique display and a pair

of afternoon antique tractor parades. “Hopefully I’ve got it big enough,” Carlisle says of the show layout, “but we can add or take away depending on how it works out.” Until next week though, “all we can do is hope for good weather,” he notes. “But we’ll take it in stride.” Hastings County Queen of the Furrow Brianna Dracup was also in attendance along with two of this year’s contestants, Brittany Dracup and Courtney Ray, who were among those participating in the plowing demonstrations. A third contestant, Rebecca Haan, has also announced her intention to run. Antiques Chair Ron Hough climbed aboard an aged but able workhorse while Horse

Plowing Chair Kim Hadwen set himself up behind a pair of mules. A recent addition to the Hadwen farm, and eligible to compete in the horse plowing competition, the duo of Tony and Fred will be the first mule team to take part in the Hastings County Plowing Match. And, Hadwen notes, after several years of decline in the field, “we have some new people coming and a ten-year-old who was reserve champion in his class last year [at the IPM].” This year, Tristin Bouthilier will be participating in the Hastings County Plowing Match as a seasoned 11-year-old and, Hadwen notes, while the competition is almost always more than 50 years his senior, the youngster is treated very much as an equal.

himself to be a caring, professional provider of all dental services. Dr. Ramez enjoys all dental procedures and has a special interest in surgery--implants, implant supported dentures, and removal of wisdom teeth. Dr. Ramez provides all dental services using IV sedation as may be desired by FDC patients. Dr Ramez is also proud to lecture at University of Western Ontario Dental School. This gives him an opportunity to meet and recruit excellent Associate Dentists to our practice. As part of their long-standing tradition of patient care, they offer a wide variety of dental services and are offering $99.00 cleanings to all new patients. They are your neighbourhood headquarters for all things dental. To contact Family Dental Centre, please call 613-398-8888 or contact them through their website at www.familydentalcentre.com

The present meets the past as Queen of the Furrow contestant Brittany Dracup and Horse Plowing Chair Kim Hadwen, with the help of mules Tony and Fred, practise their plowing skills. On the right are show hosts Bruce and Linda Philp. The Hastings County Plowing Match and Farm Show runs next Wednesday and Thursday.

The Good Earth:

Dan Clost

Lifestyles - Today, Gentle Reader, this column isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really about gardening unless you look at it from natureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grander perspective. Our recent vacation saw us exploring the Lanark highlands north and slightly west of Perth. Lanark County has the odd pile of rocks and stones cluttering up its landscape and the settlers made good use of them. What we found

those commonalities faded away. We drove a few miles north of Perth on Highway 511 and then did a clockwise loop beginning at Lanark, passing through Fergusonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Falls and back out onto 511: nice ďŹ&#x201A;at country with many farms, numerous creeks and possibly the largest gravel pit Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever seen. Once back on the main highway we continued north about 15 kilometres to the French Line Road. Our intent was to swing north from there onto Campbell Road but â&#x20AC;&#x153;gang aft agleyâ&#x20AC;? should have been our motto. Road construction prevented our planned turn and we went on an adventure down Black Creek Road. It was a very wide, freshly graded and gravel affair that seemed to have no real purpose or destination. The terrain was either rock ridges or marshy bottom land (we saw ducks, herons, turtles and deer who saw us but werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as excited to see us as us them). We did pass by Joeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lake (as

near as we could tell Joe wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t home that day) before touring the settlement of Poland. This counter clockwise loop took almost two hours to complete. When Betty and I travel to speciďŹ c destinations, Betty is the best navigator there is; when we tour, we navigate by the compass with vague thoughts like, â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we come to the river, turn right.â&#x20AC;? It could be the Rideau, the Tay or the Clyde, doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter. Friends of ours have some land alongside the Clyde River and we were able to take a guided stroll through their 85-acre property. GR, I am not an arborist although I do know a fair bit about trees. The forests are mixed with deciduous and conifers and of two distinct groupings. Along the granite upthrusts we saw red oak, sugar maple and white pine. On the bottom land (an old sea bottom with a limestone base) we saw balsam ďŹ r, white elm, black cherry, black locust, poplar and thuja (eastern white cedar) mixed with

ironwood (Ostrya virginiana.) I was happily identifying these trees for our friends when I came across a single walnut sapling. It stopped me in my tracks. As you are aware, seeds can be dispersed by many vectors but it would be remarkable if this walnut was carried internally by a bird, and squirrels donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t generally put on their hiking boots for one tree. As we turned a corner, we saw Colorado blue spruce, paper birch, basswood and, on the edge of the front lawn, several blue ash and two English walnut trees. Previous owners had introduced these chappies to the area some 20 years ago and there were a few remnants of the original plantings. I have to say that I did not like seeing the Colorado blue spruces â&#x20AC;Ś they were deďŹ nitely out of place in spite of being healthy and happy. Lanark Highlands is a very nice, relaxed place to visit with tremendous diversity in both geology and architecture.

We need a new mating ritual

Humans, on the other hand, can ďŹ ght against instinct. We women can decide that a man doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really need to impress us at all. If he shows any interest, even if heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lout, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll fall at his feet. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not insisting on good traits anymore. A number of cultural factors brought about this shift. Both men and women stopped valuing marriage as much. People delayed commitment and spent longer in school, often not adopting regular adult responsibilities until well into their thirties. The sexual revolution meant that we stressed sex over love. And feminism taught women that they should go out there and have fun and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let yourself be shackled. So our mating rituals became far less about impressing anyone and far more about using people. However, while some people are perfectly happy hooking up for the rest

of their lives, most people arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. Most of us, both male and female, still want someone we can love who will love us back, with whom we can walk through life. Unfortunately, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going about it all wrong. If you want to be married with kids, for instance, hooking up with someone and moving in with them is unlikely to help you meet your goal. One friend of mine lived with a guy from the time she was 24 until she was 41 and ďŹ nally realized he wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t marry her. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just women getting their hearts broken, either; I know plenty of men who have loved women who had no intention of settling down, too. Other girls I know have thrown away their university years getting their hearts broken by men who used them when it was convenient for them, and spent most of their free time with video

games or porn. Yet these smart, pretty girls thought, â&#x20AC;&#x153;all men were like that,â&#x20AC;? so theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have to settle. Of course, the more these girls settled, the more men tend to act like that! The women ďŹ gured, though, that eventually these guys would fall in love with them and magically change, putting aside the Xbox and the creepy web sites. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a really bad plan. If you want a commitment, then maybe you need a new mating ritual. Treat yourself with the respect you want from someone else. Do they have goals? Are they kind and considerate? And how do they treat their mother? (You may laugh, but it reveals a lot!) If we want better relationships in the end, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s start better in the beginning. Stop the hooking up cycle: itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not part of a mating ritual; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a casual dating ritual. Instead, look at the character

Sheila Wray Gregoire someone is displaying. And then keep your distance until you ďŹ nd a winner. If more people did that, fewer people would have to build a nest alone.

Market will feature artists, crafters and local farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; produce

By Sue Dickens

News - Warkworth - Artists, artisans and vendors with local produce will all be under one roof at the Red Barn in Warkworth â&#x20AC;&#x153;bringing something differentâ&#x20AC;? to the village for the third year in a row. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The concept of the East Street Market, when it ďŹ rst started, was to bring awareness to the Red Barn,â&#x20AC;? said Janet

Torrance, organizer of this annual event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is also known as the cow palace and dates back decades, to the early 1900s I think,â&#x20AC;? she added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At one point it was an arena,â&#x20AC;? she noted. The Red Barn is now used for the beef show during the fall fair but this time it will be used to showcase the

A Tour of Lanark County

interesting was that the Scots heritage of these folk came through clearly. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen many an example of the British (read English) style of stone architecture throughout the province but there is something distinctly different about the way the Scottish masonsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; handiwork melds into the landscape. If I was as learned an explorer as the redoubtable John Smith, I might be able to explain better. Perhaps I should say that one is set on top of the ground and the other settles into it. There were many cut log buildings in use as homes, barns and outbuildings that reminded me of my younger days on the farm in Grenville County. One other group of buildings came to the fore and those were the wooden churches, circa 1800-1850. It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter the denomination on the signboard out front, there was a deďŹ nite similarity in design. Mind you, once some wealth came into the community and bricks and stones were employed,

Reality Check: Lifestyles - A little over a year ago my husband and I decided that we just werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t geeky enough, and so we added bird watching to our list of hobbies. Last week we went searching for some peregrine falcons that had roosted in a water tower, and as we were watching the pair of them circling overhead, I starting pondering how birds choose a mate. In most of the animal kingdom, the guy has to impress the girl if he wants any action. So he goes to absurd lengths, showing off his colours, or his ability to ďŹ&#x201A;y in circles, or his song, or whatever else may ďŹ&#x201A;ip her switch, and the girl goes all gaga and they build a nest together. A guy who canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ďŹ&#x201A;y in circles, or whose blue just isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t blue enough, is passed over because these girls are picky. They want a guy who has the qualities it takes to be the dad to her babies. Animals do this by instinct, of course.

When interviewed there were 18 vendors signed up for the event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We still have

News - Campbellford - The 159th annual Campbellford Fair came under close scrutiny last weekendâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;but the eyes were friendly ones. Who exactly they belonged to CampbellfordSeymour Agricultural Society directors couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say, because they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know, but they could tell you where they were from: Port Perry. The visitors were in town to give the fair the once-over, as part of a second-year program called First Impressions in which agricultural societies are paired together, and a team from each visits the otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fair to evaluate how good a job theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a win-inâ&#x20AC;? for both, said local fair board

president Brian Redden after Friday nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ofďŹ cial opening, because the two agricultural societies will ďŹ nd out whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good and bad in their exhibitions â&#x20AC;&#x153;through somebody elseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eyes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re always trying to improve; this gives us something to work on,â&#x20AC;? he said. Redden didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know which day the group from Port Perry would be attending the three-day fair, and fair board members in the other community will be in the dark when Redden and his group show up incognito for its fair August 31-September 2. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great program,â&#x20AC;? he said. The program is offered by the Ontario Association of Agricultural Societies. Reddenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife, Cathy, is its second vice-president.


Friends of Ferris and Ontario Parks unveil new DeBug All-Terrain wheelchair By Sue Dickens

community development with Community Living said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a step toward inclusivity and making the park accessible to all citizens in the community.â&#x20AC;? For park-goers like Mary Fennell, who was the first to sit in the new wheelchair, with the seatbelt on, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very comfortable and good to get around in the park.â&#x20AC;? Grace Barker, a member of FofF, who is just getting over foot surgery, said the wheelchair is a great idea. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can only walk a short distance and I think it will be very important to have this to see all of the park. I love to come here,â&#x20AC;? she said. Large air-cushioned tires are among the most obvious items that make the new DeBug All-Terrain wheelchair unique. The riderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s body is properly supported in the adjustable tilt angle chair. The rear wheels rotate 360 degrees so the wheelchair turns easily and quickly. The articulating rear suspension allows all four wheels to remain in contact with uneven terrain resulting in more stability than fixed wheelchairs. The DeBug also features removable arm rests for lateral transfers, an adjustable foot rest and adjustable tension wheel brakes on each side. By reserving the All-Terrain wheelchair, individuals will be able to participate in annual Kite Day in May. In co-operation with Ontario Parks, the All-Terrain wheelchair is now ready for reservations for use in the park. As part of the Ontario Parks Barrier Free initiative, day users are able to borrow the All-Terrain wheelchair to facilitate access to all day-use facilities. The DeBug is available to residents of Ontario who are the holder of an Acces-

sible Parking Permit (Reg. 581), a national identity card issued by CNIB or an equivalent permit from other jurisdictions. The borrower may reserve the wheelchair at the park by phoning 613-922-1715, signing a waiver and submitting a $100 refundable deposit. For more information go to <http:// www.friendsofferris.ca/debugallterrainwheelchair.html>. A new DeBug All-Terrain wheelchair made its debut at Ferris Provincial Park thanks to a local grant: from left, park-goer Grace Barker and her dog Ruby Tuesday; Mary Fennell, the first to sit in the new wheelchair; Pam Vandesteeg and Martha Murphy of the Campbellford/Seymour Community Foundation; Evan Cleave, head gate attendant at Ferris; Dawn Lee, director of quality enhancement and community development with Community Living; and Barb Hogan, president of Friends of Ferris.

News - Campbellford - Accessibility to Ferris Provincial Park just took a giant step forward with the unveiling of a new DeBug All-Terrain wheelchair. Made possible with a $2,700 grant from the Campbellford/Seymour Community Foundation, the new wheelchair makes it possible for those with physical challenges to gain access to the approximately 200-hectare park that is located just outside of Campbellford. Friends of Ferris (FofF) supported by Ontario Parks spearheaded the move to apply for a grant making acquisition of the wheelchair possible. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re always working together,â&#x20AC;? said Carol Robertson, vice president and an active member of Friends of Ferris, a not-forprofit charitable trust dedicated to the promotion and preservation of the park. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thanks to John Knox, treasurer of FofF Board for his efforts to complete the application and to the Foundation for granting the money to make the AllTerrain wheelchair become a reality,â&#x20AC;? said Robertson. She was joined by FofF President Barb Hogan and Evan Cleave, head gate attendant at Ferris and others to celebrate the park becoming more accessible. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ontario Parks is making an effort to make all the parks more accessible and one of the efforts that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done is incorporate these all-terrain wheelchairs,â&#x20AC;? said Cleave. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Presquâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ile [Provincial Park] has one â&#x20AC;Ś they are slowly coming into the parks.

Celebrating silver for the love of art

By Scott Pettigrew

News - Tweed - The 7/37 Art Gallery is celebrating their 25th or silver anniversary this year with a number of artists featured for the month of August. Arja Pallonen and Joe Kurek both run the gallery located just east of Highway 37 on Highway 7 and have an interesting story to tell about how the gallery got started. “We started the business in Newfoundland because that was Joe’s last posting in the navy,” said Arja, “While he was in the navy I fell back on my painting full time. One day we had a party at the house of people from the base who entered the room where my paintings were hung and wanted to buy them. Before we knew it we were Arja Pallonen and Joe Kurek of the 7/37 Art Gallery are seen here with one of the many featured art- so busy we opened half our house into a ists Barre Beacock (c) as they have been having a 25th anniversary celebration at the gallery for most gallery and I sold nearly 200 paintings within a year and a half.

a large addition shortly after we arrived. People thought we were crazy opening a gallery on Highway 7 but it has turned out to be a wonderful location.” At present the building houses over 1,000 paintings that are hung on the walls with more in storage; they feature the work of over 50 artists. Joe and Arja said they have to sell the business because of Joe’s health but their hope is the building will continue to be used as a gallery. Arja explained, “It would be easy for us to empty the building and sell everything because all of the work here is on consignment (there is no other way we could have so many paintings), but it would not feel right. The whole idea for us is that the artists that have shown here over the years will continue to have a place to show their work. There are not too many venues like this because most galleries are very selective and will only show a few painters at any one time. And we are proud to say we have no reproductions!” “Reproductions are what has killed art!” added Joe, “We have been against it for 25 years and have turned hundreds of painters away who wanted to sell reproductions.

for $2 in the Salvation Army and that is all they worth.” Arja continued, “Over the years we have met so many people from around the world who bought paintings; all of the flags we have hanging in the front represent different countries who have bought art work. “Many of the artists who have paintings here are painting friends and we have a bond with these painters. Well-known painter Don Fraser was a teacher of mine in Toronto and helped this gallery tremendously in the beginning allowing us to sell his work after much convincing. We have sold close to 1,300 of Fraser’s paintings over the years.” “With me being American and Arja Canadian I think it has helped us understand our customers from both sides of the border,” added Joe. “Arja should be remembered for what she has accomplished and the many young artists she has helped support over the years.” Arja wrapped up by saying, “You don’t get rich from this business but it has been a labour of love and we have a great wealth of experiences and friendships from the last 25 years.”

News - Norwood Relic’s Boat from Millbrook will add its special brand of “Canadiana” folk flare to the final Norwood Lions splashpad concert at the Asphodel-Norwood Community Centre August 20.

total “adjustment.” It will be another “opportunity for individuals and groups to bring their donations toward the splash pad,” says Lions splash pad committee member Ron Scott. “We will move the red line closer to its ultimate goal.” “How far it will go that night nobody knows but let’s make it move for sure,” Scott said. Each concert has realized around $1,000, he added. “Local fund raising has

exceeded expectations,” Scott says. “Much of the success has to be attributed to the generous donation of time and talent by the entertainers who have performed for us and also to the generosity of [people] at the weekly concerts.” The Lions are grateful for all of the support and Scott says they are already talking about what they can do next year to make the concert series even better. Relic’s Boat has been in Norwood before playing a highly entertaining gig at the Cat Sass Coffeehouse and blends old-time Canadiana music with a bluegrass flair that concert-goers should enjoy. As Scott notes food has been an attraction as well at the weekly concert series with the Lions serving up barbecue fare and the Lioness scooping up ice cream and selling butter tarts and cupcakes. The Asphodel-Norwood Beautification Committee has been selling corn on the cob as well. “Many local organizations and individuals have been pitching in to [make] this very worthwhile project in Norwood a reality.” Showtime is at 7 p.m.; the barbecue begins at 6 p.m.

One year the organizers moved the event into the nearby arena because the weather was going to be so bad, but efforts are made to keep it downtown if at all possible to keep the spotlight on downtown businesses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have about 600 tickets available and are past the half-way mark in ticket sales,â&#x20AC;?

While there will be plenty to see throughout the sprawling two-day show, set for next Wednesday and Thursday at the Philp and Parr farms just south of Stirling on Fairgrounds Road, there will also be a full slate of activities, workshops and presentations under one roof, at the Family Tent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great program every year,â&#x20AC;? says Farm Show Publicity Chair Jim Haggerty, adding the 25th anniversary show is no exception. Among the varied topics to be discussed by the scheduled guest speakers, he says, are clocks and watches, Africa, Farmtown Park and the Hastings Stewardship Council.

the items up for discussion in Wednesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s featured lineup which also includes a fashion show by Juliaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and presentations on the Stirling Festival Theatre and the Ontario Water Buffalo Company.

Young Madoc singer dazzles showcase crowd By Bill Freeman

Entertainment - Norwood The crowd at the Cat Sass showcase concert will remember the night they heard Vivian Forte. The 15-year-old Madoc singer dazzled the Lions Tuesday Night concert series audience with a set of exquisitely original songs and immediately established herself as a performer with a bright and

promising future ahead of her. It was like watching a young Sarah Harmer or Serena Ryder, not afraid to take a chance with a parcel of self-styled songs and fully conďŹ dent that the audience would understand. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in front of people youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got that feedback aspect to it,â&#x20AC;? Vivian said following a set that featured some regu-

lar performers from the Cat Sass open stage nights. New fans were quick to snap up the demo CD she has available for sale. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You get to see them and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very nice to be personal with them, to see how they are reacting to your songs,â&#x20AC;? she said. Vivian has been playing the piano for about seven years but picked up the guitar two or three

years ago. She has been taking her music to audiences for the past year-and-a-half. Her inďŹ&#x201A;uences are many and varied, she happily admits, which is why the music is so interesting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just all over. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bunch of artists [I listen to].â&#x20AC;? She did say that a visit to Madoc by musician Peter Katz, touring Europe this fall with LakeďŹ eld native Royal Wood, gave her some words to live and create by. Katz said some things while he was performing that struck home, Vivian recalled. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He said that song-writing doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come easily; that was

kind of the moment when I said, Mostly a solo artist, Vivian â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;You know what? Maybe I can says sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s played â&#x20AC;&#x153;a few things do this.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; That kind of inspired me with friends in front of meâ&#x20AC;? and a bit.â&#x20AC;? doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rule out working with other musicians on stage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I ďŹ nd more people who â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I find more people want to jam with me I might do who want to jam with it again.â&#x20AC;?

Emergency fraud taken to a new level

News - Trent Hills - On Friday, August 9, Northumberland Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) received a report of a possible fraud from a resident being asked to withdraw funds and meet the requestor at speciďŹ c location in Campbellford. OPP were advised that an elderly female was contacted by an unknown male caller around noon on Thursday, August 8, saying he was â&#x20AC;&#x153;testing employee honesty at her bank.â&#x20AC;? The male told the victim to withdraw $4,900 from her account Vivian Forte of Madoc dazzled the crowd at the Cat Sass Coffeehouse showcase that was part of the Norwood Lions Clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s regu- and that if the teller asked what the lar Tuesday night concert series at the Asphodel-Norwood Community Centre.

She was then directed to meet another male at a location where he would take the money from her. The victim did provide her clothing description that day and her vehicle licence to the caller but had second thoughts and did not go through with the transaction or meeting; instead she contacted a family member and the police. The banks in Campbellford were notiďŹ ed of this event by OPP and the victim took necessary actions to protect her credit card and bank account numbers as a precaution. OPP are continuing this investigation.

Northumberland OPP would like to caution residents about this type of fraud being taken to a different level as the suspect is now asking to meet in person who could then potentially endanger the person for further victimization such as assault or robbery. Please do not provide any personal information, credit card or bank account numbers to persons seeking it. For further information regarding fraud and how to protect yourself and family, please contact the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre at 1-888-495-8501 or go online to <www.antifraudcentre. ca>.

CARD OF THANKS

THANK YOU Kim, Siobhan and Chantelle Hughes would like to express their heartfelt thanks and appreciation to everyone for their kindness in being with us, the messages of sympathy, flowers, donations and delicious food brought to our home during the recent loss of Adam. We would like to acknowledge and extend a special thanks to McConnell Funeral Homes for their compassion, kindness and expertise at this very difficult time. We would also like to thank Father John Gillis and the parishioners of Sacred Heart Catholic Church for their ongoing support. We are grateful to both the Sacred Heart School Staff members and the Catholic Women’s league for the excellent meals provided between the visitations and after the funeral mass. We are deeply grateful to all of Adam’s friends; it was obvious how truly loved he was and we want to continue to hear stories and special memories. Adam was a beloved son, brother, grandson, cousin, nephew and friend and “His smile that is worth the praises of the earth is a smile that will shine through our tears, give us our strength, and soften our fears.”

TRAVEL

Floating down the river in Basel, Switzerland By John M. Smith

Lifestyles - Basel, Switzerland, is sometimes said to be “the Cultural Heart of Switzerland,” with its more than 30 museums and its many yearly festivals and events including Basel’s Carnival, Basel’s Christmas Market, Art Basel, and the Basel Tattoo. This beautiful city, located on a bend of the Rhine River, and very near the borders of both Germany and France, is also renowned for its fascinating and long history; it was a home to both the Celts and the Romans

in bygone eras and has been inhabited for well over 2,000 years. Indeed, there are “reminders” of this past in several of the city’s museums and via the remnants of the old fortifications. However, the major attraction I’ll remember as a result of my recent visit to Basel will be my witnessing hundreds of people simply floating down the Rhine! I was there on a very hot, humid weekend, and I watched as many people simply stripped off their street clothes (with their swimsuits having

been worn underneath, in preparation), packed these clothes and their cell phones, etc., into waterproof bags they had brought with them for this very purpose (known as “Wickelfisch”), descended the riverbank steps and on out into the river and then proceeded to simply float downstream using the waterproof bag as their floating apparatus and the current as their mover. What a sight! This spectacle is unique to Basel, and very intriguing, and it has been taking place here for hundreds of years. I was told that even back in the 15th century, nuns in the former Klingental Abbey often took advantage of this “recreational activity.” There’s now an annual “Rhine Swim” day, too, when hundreds of participants enter the water at about the same time and float downstream, accompanied by both boats and rescue swimmers, staying on the Klein Basel side of the river, and then exiting the water at the Johanniter Bridge. However, if you’re visiting here, you certainly don’t have to wait for this special event, for you’ll find many willing participants on any nice summer day. Since I was witnessing “the Basel float” on a hot Sunday afternoon, I couldn’t help but be reminded of a

very old song lyric: “Cruising down the river on a Sunday afternoon”. The song suggests that such an activity is very relaxing and, indeed, to watch these participants gently floating downstream seemed exactly that. After all, these people weren’t really swimming or exerting much energy at all. They were simply floating with the current. However, they did have to watch out for boats, including the small ferry that takes people from one side of the Rhine to the other, and bridge pillars, and they had to put out some effort at the end of their ride/ float in order to get to shore. On this particular Sunday afternoon, many of them simply exited the water, sat down on the steps along the shoreline, and let the warm sun do the drying. Then they’d eventually take out their dry clothes from the waterproof bags and get dressed again.  I was on a walking tour of the city with my guide, Armgard, at this time, and although I found this particular “floating spectacle” so intriguing, she did manage to eventually get me away from there, so I did discover that Basel has much more to see and do. For example, you wouldn’t want to miss the magnificent Basel Munster where Erasmus is buried; City Hall, the brightly painted “Rathaus” that dominates Market Square; the Historical

Museum housed in a 13th century church; Spalentor, a 14th century city gate; Switzerland’s oldest university which was founded in 1460; Puppenhausmuseum with its large collection of teddy bears; Kunstmuseum or the Museum of Art; Tinguely Museum which is dedicated to the works of this Swiss iron sculptor; or the nearby Augusta Raurica, the largest archaeological park in the country. I also enjoyed a stroll along the Rhine Promenade and a visit to St. Alban-Tal, known as “Basel’s Little Venice” with its intriguing, old timber-framed houses and its picturesque, narrow canals. I also discovered several interesting sculptures throughout this city, but I was particularly impressed by the Tinguely Fountain, with its wacky iron sculptures spewing out water.   One part of this structure included an iron pan, and my guide told me that some people tried to get a coin to land in it for good luck. However, she also said that you might come back the next day to find that that coin had disappeared! While exploring Basel, I stayed at the Hotel Schweizerhof, which was conveniently located next to the train station, and I was given a transportation pass (as did all Basel hotels). What a very welcomed “money-saving extra” for visitors to this city! In addition, this particular establishment also provided all guests with free bottled water and soft drinks and I certainly liked that!

8 Wing Trenton welcomes new commander

News - CFB Trenton Colonel David Lowthian assumed command of 8 Wing Trenton from Colonel Sean Friday, in a ceremony held at CFB Trenton on Wednesday, August 7. Major-General Pierre StAmand, Commander of 1 Canadian Air Division and the Canadian NORAD Region, presided over the ceremony. “As the hub of air mobility operations in Canada, 8 Wing Trenton has been a very busy air base with its wide array of capabilities from delivering supplies to the high Arctic to airlifting troops, equipment and humanitarian loads worldwide,” said Major-General St-Amand. “The successful air mobility operations under Colonel Friday’s command, both in Canada and abroad, have confirmed 8 Wing’s important role in the Royal Canadian Air Force. I’m confident that Colonel Friday’s successes will be continued with the new leadership of Colonel Lowthian.” Since Colonel Friday became the Wing Commander in August 2011, 8 Wing Trenton has successfully contributed to various mission across Canada and overseas such as Operation (Op) ATHENA, Op ATTENTION, Op MOBILE, Op JAGUAR, and Task Force

Mali, to name a few. “I’m extremely proud of the 8 Wing team for everything we’ve accomplished,” said Colonel Friday. “They exceeded my expectations. I’m honoured to have had the opportunity to lead 8 Wing and I know that Colonel Lowthian will enjoy his time in Trenton as much as I did.” As he officially took command of 8 Wing Trenton from the previous Commander, Colonel Lowthian said that he is “looking forward to leading the men and women of 8 Wing who are committed to serving Canada.” “We will remain agile and respond to whatever challenges confront us, and we will continue to work closely with the entire RCAF team, the Defence Team, and our civilian partners in pursuit of mission success and Canadian interests,” he said. Colonel David Lowthian enrolled in the Canadian Forces in 1989 under the Direct Entry Officer plan with a diploma in Business Administration. Earning his pilot wings in 1992, he remained in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, where he instructed basic and advanced flying on the CT-114 Tutor jet. In July 2007, he was selected to be Commanding Officer of 429 (T) Squadron after the Canadian Forces announced the acquisition

of four CC-177 Globemaster III strategic airlifters. Overseeing the introduction of the new fleet, he led the Bison Squadron in its mission to “reliably impact all theatres of operations with relevance and unlimited reach.” The Air Force Association awarded 429 (T) Squadron with the Gordon R. McGregor Trophy for its extraordinary abilities in responding to Canadian airlift requirements in 2008. In November 2009, Colonel Lowthian deployed to Afghanistan for ten months as Deputy Commander of the Joint Task Force Afghanistan Air Wing (Task Force Silver Dart) in Kandahar where he championed the furtherance of the wing’s mandate to provide airlift, tactical aviation, and unmanned air vehicle support to Task Force Kandahar and Joint Task Force Afghanistan. In May 2011, following second language training, Colonel Lowthian was promoted to his current rank and selected to attend the Air War College at Maxwell Air Force Base in Montgomery, Alabama. While attending the Air War College, Colonel Lowthian earned his Master’s in Strategic Studies with academic distinction; he was also awarded the Secretary of the Air Force Leadership Award

and the Wright Brothers Award for officership. Colonel Lowthian is the first graduate to have received both honours. In June 2012, Colonel Lowthian was appointed Chief of Staff for the 1st Canadian Division Headquarters in Kingston, Ontario, where he directed the activities of

Air cadets slip the surly bonds of Earth By Ross Lees

News - Trenton - A majority of the cadets who graduated from the Central Region Gliding School last Friday canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t drive a car, but they can now fly a glider. Lieutenant-Colonel Jason Stark, the former Commanding Officer of 429 (Transport) Squadron, pointed out that irony to the parents and relatives of the graduates, adding thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no better feeling than flying solo for the first time and especially getting that true sense of flying available only in a glider. He used a story to put their accomplishment into perspective. A glider pilot flying at 1,500 feet looks up and sees a Cessna pilot flying at 3,000 feet and says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Man, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d love to be a Cessna pilot.â&#x20AC;? The Cessna pilot looks up and sees a King Air pilot flying at 6,000 feet and says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Man, would I love to be flying a King Air.â&#x20AC;? The pilot looks up at an airline pilot flying at 30,000 feet and wishes he could be an airline pilot. The airline pilot looks into space and wishes he could be Chris Hadfield. But Chris Hadfield is looking way back down at that glider and saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would love to be in that glider right now!â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know that over the past six weeks, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve all worked incredibly hard, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve demonstrated the professionalism, the commitment, dedication, skill and talent required to as they say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;slip

the surly bonds of Earth,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; and join all your fellow pilot brethren,â&#x20AC;? he noted. He recalled taking the first steps along his path of aviationâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a path which began at the Central Region Gliding Schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; and continuing along that path into the Canadian Armed Forces. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For any of you that want to pursue that path, I can tell you I have no regrets. I have over 5,000 hours of flying experience, in the CC-130 and the C-17, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been to the Arctic, the Antarctic, Asia, the Middle East, Europe, the Pacific and pretty much everywhere I ever dreamed I would want to go. All of that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m able to do because of the wings I have on my chest,â&#x20AC;? he noted. Lieutenant-Colonel Stark told the audience these pilots learn there are no doovers when flying a glider. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When they release from that towplane, every decision they make is critical to ensuring that plane, that glider, goes back to the same place it took off from,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All of you have shown the decision-making required to do that or we would not have pinned those wings on your chests today. Flying a glider is careful management of altitude and speed, assessment of winds and assessment of where you are and your space,â&#x20AC;? he noted. Sixty-one cadets were presented with their glider pilot wings after successfully completing the Transport Canada requirements for becoming a licensed glider pilot.

Scientists researching ways to prevent spread of invasive plant in Trent River found along a stretch of the river in Trent Hills is the only one that’s been found in the wild in North America. “There was quite an infestation, especially in some of the sheltered bays,” said Danielle Tassie, project liaison at the Ontario Invasive Plant Council. “Entire shorelines were clogged with it.” Native to Europe and northwest Asia, water soldier was introduced to North America as an ornamental plant in water gardens. “Somebody either accidentally or deliberately put it into the river, not knowing this is an invasive species,” Tassie said. In addition to forming “dense monocultures” that supplant native vegetation and does harm to aquatic organisms, water soldier also affects users of the waterway “recreationally, economically,” Tassie said. Similar in appearance to a spider plant or the top of a pineapple, it impedes boating and discourages swimming. With its “really sharp edges, it’s not a plant that you want to be in the water with,” Tassie said.  In a bid to bring the invasive species under control, the MNR

joined forces with the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters (OFAH), Lower Trent Conservation, Trent University, Ontario Invasive Plant Control and Parks Canada. Manual and chemical means were employed, including a herbicide called Reward. “However, the size of several populations and the biology and life cycle of the plant … made it difficult” to eradicate, Berube said. The research efforts currently under way are being funded by the ministry and the Canada/Ontario Invasive Species Centre. Berube said “large populations of the plant can be detected when growing above water,” but smaller populations that are submerged “are much more difficult” to spot, complicating monitoring and control efforts. “Scientists at Trent University and MNR are investigating a variety of innovative techniques this summer to help detect water soldier, including the use of environmental DNA to find the plants where they exist in low numbers,” she said. This “will hopefully prove very useful for future monitoring.” More of that is planned this

fall when water soldier “will be much more visible” remaining “a vibrant green” while native aquatic vegetation turn browner, Berube said. The MNR will be working with the OFAH and Trent University to co-ordinate the monitoring. More information on water soldier is available at <www.ontario.ca/invasivespecies>. The public is also encouraged to call the Invading Species Hotline at 1-800-5637711 to report sightings of the plant in new locations in the river. The province and its partners have relied on public awareness campaigns to help prevent the accidental spread of water soldier to new locations. Tips include: choosing not to use the plant in water gardens or aquariums; avoiding infested areas in the river or reducing the speed of the boat when travelling through them; removing all plants, animals and mud from your boat, trailer and equipment after each use.
